What Authors Are Saying About Talk to the Author!
“When I was studying journalism, we were taught the five w’s and the h: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How. Your interview asked a good many “why’s,” something that isn’t often asked any more. You made me think more carefully and, as a result, your interview was very interesting and got a lot more information from me than others might. In addition, I felt very comfortable because of the supportive atmosphere you created.” Hildred Corbett – Michigan

Hi Mamie,
“Thank you! I loved how you talked about the story and characters. It was obvious you read it thoughtfully. I really enjoyed our conversation and some of my friends and family did too!
I have a student who has written a book. I’m hoping to get a copy from her to show you soon. Maybe you can interview her as well.”

Cathy Zucker – Rochester Hills, Michigan

Bless you Mamie! What a wonderful piece you did on my books! You saw exactly what I wanted the books to do, make people think about how glorious the Almighty’s creations are and His willingness to let His creatures venture out on their own. I am very excited to be doing your radio show. Is that webpage up and running so I can spread the news among my followers etc.? I don’t want to steal your thunder but help promote. Attorney John Higgins – New Jersey

Questions That Many Authors Ask:

Am I paying to make an appearance on the “Talk to the Author” Show?
No, you are making a nominal donation to a worthy cause to market yourself and your book to a worldwide audience in an effort to get the message of your book heard.
Is it normal for authors to pay to have their books marketed?
Yes, publishing companies, publicity organizations, radio and TV stations charge thousands of dollars in order to market an author’s book. Marketing your book is the business aspect not the creative side, and unless you market it, very few people will learn about it.
What are some costs that authors incur when they market themselves and their books?
Many writers of press releases (some with no journalism experience) charge $300-$800 just to WRITE a press release. A mini-blog that researches you and your book can cost as much as $1000-$3000.
Do most radio station hosts research a book and author, prepare questions to give to authors so that they will feel comfortable coming on their shows and write a mini-blog for each author?
No, “Talk to the Author” host Dr. Mamie Smith is very unique in how she approaches authors who appear on the show. Our experience is that most radio hosts simply bring you on and ask questions “off the top of their heads.” You do not get any preparation except what you do on your own.
I am uncomfortable paying or donating anything to an online station to let me come on their show because giving a donation does not guarantee someone will purchase my book. So, should I do it?
No. Your comfort level is key to the success of your interview. If you do not want to pay anything to market your book, your attitude will affect how you respond to the interview. Market it yourself via social media, personal contacts and family and friends. Marketing is not easy to get a “handle on” because the results come in many stages and at various times. However, it has been proven that without it, the chances of successful recognition are very limited.

A Touching Story





How the disciples of Christian Science cope with fatal illness.

 Reader Rating 


Posted August 29, 2008, 2:45 AM EST: I am always curious about the principles of Christian Science and wonder how the disciples of Christian Science would cope physically and psychologically when they themselves and their loved ones are struck by the fatal illness such as cancer. As one of the Christian Science people Mamie L. Smith shed light on the uniqueness of her faith to the readers of her book, THE UNFOLDING OF A ROSE, by explaining how her faith in Christian Science sustains her through her hardship and sadness of losing her daughter to cancer. After Meta, her daughter, passed away she picks up pieces of their business and continue on. Smith is an educator and a businesswoman and she neither claims that she is a scholar in Christian Science nor a professional writer. Yet this book is worth reading as a well composed case study of Christian Science belief and practice. My dear Mamie Smith, I am glad I read your book!

Posted June 17, 2008, 10:53 AM EST: Mamie L. Smith in her book ‘The Unfolding of A Rose’ opened my eyes to the weakness in my faith and to the strength, courage and grace shown by the author. The author lost her beautiful Rose while she was in full bloom but Meta’s grace and courage lingers like perfumed air.

A Reader of The Unfolding of a Rose

Good morning Mamie:
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. I am certain you were
personally healed while writing about “The Unfolding of A Rose”, because I
was healed while reading it, as I am sure other readers will experience as
well! This writing made me cry, laugh, gave me joy and hope. Your daughter
gave so much of herself while servicing her clients (family and friends). I
have yet to find a salesperson such as Meta’s lovely spirit. I am still
wearing so many of the beautiful accessories (earrings, dresses, suits,
coats and hats) that Meta sought out for my personal use. Compliments and
admirations have not ceased on the purchases that I utilize that Meta
selected for me with her savvy eye for fashion; and, I will never forget the
wonderful conversations, kindness and love that she showed to me during our
relationship. Keep hope alive in your writings and please know that Meta
will never be forgotten. In my opinion, this book is a success! Give my
regards to your Granddaughter! May God continue to bless you and yours.
Love always!

P.S. Happy Belated Birthday. We share the same date – – October 19th. I
am blessed to have turned 60 years old, in good health, saved, sanctified
and filled with the Holy Ghost. Let’s give God the Glory for the gift of
continued life. Love back!
